president hamid karzai arrives in washington to meet with president obama and talk about what happens after 2014 including how much economic aid that the united states is willing to provide. what can we expect to come out of tomorrow's meeting here in d.c.? >> reporter: i think both sides, both president hamid karzai and president obama will want to walk away from this week's meeting with a clearer picture of how many troops will remain in afghanistan post 2014. there are roughly 66,000 troops based here in afghanistan. both sides will want a clearer picture of what that looks like beyond the pullout. some numbers are reported being considered by the obama administration are 3,000, 6,000 and 9,000. those are considerably smaller levels than the numbers that were proposed by general john allen who is the head commander here in afghanistan for the u.s. forces. he suggested that the troop level should be 6,000 to 20,000. the thinking is if there is a smaller contingent they will assume more of a nimble and more specialops type of deal. if there is a larger contention then they will assume more
